TITUSVILLE, FL -- President Trump continues to keep his promises, Father Frank Pavone said today as the president announced an 20 additional people who could be nominated for the next opening on the Supreme Court.
“I know and have worked with a number of people on the list the president shared today and all of them would make fantastic Supreme Court justices,” said Father Pavone, the national director of Priests for Life. “All of these nominees would ensure equal justice, equal treatment and equal rights for all Americans. They would follow the Constitution and the laws rather than push their own political agendas.”
Father Pavone echoed the president’s call for his opponent Joe Biden to provide a list of the people he would nominate for the Supreme Court if he were president.
“Where is Biden’s list? The fact is, he is afraid to release it because so many Americans would be aghast at the left wing ideologues he would attempt to appoint.”
“In 2016 approximately 20 percent of the voters were highly motivated by the Supreme Court as an issue and the majority of them voted for President Trump. That dynamic will occur again and our motive needs to include all the other federal courts, which have the final say in 98 percent of federal cases. This should motivate us also to increase the numbers of Republican senators so that the president can get his nominees confirmed.
“In this election, think ahead. Your great-grandchildren will be reading Supreme Court decisions 40 years from now issued by Trump-appointed judges!”

The abortion rate in America is the lowest it has been since Roe v. Wade and in recent years states have passed more than 400 laws to protect the unborn. The number of freestanding abortion clinics in the U.S. has dropped from 2179 in 1991 down to 710 today, and President Trump has placed 200 pro-life judges on the federal bench.
